This weekend I went back to Michigan for Halloween, and I'm VERY proud of my homemade Halloween costume!

It was a busy weekend for me back in Detroit. I carved pumpkins, went to three Halloween parties, visited family, went to the zoo, and saw country artist Luke Bryan in concert. I had spooky make-up done by my friend for the concert, but my real Halloween costume was an ear of corn!

Yes, I said an ear of corn.

The number one thing people say to me when I tell them I live in Iowa is: "Isn't Iowa all corn?" so I decided to just play into the stereotype. Iowa pride, baby! Here are a few more pics from my trip back to Detroit:
